I am not as impressed with your clever prose as you are:
"Fukagawa is a neighborhood in Tokyo’s Koto ward, just 3km east of the Imperial Palace and Tokyo Station, and across the Sumida River. Like most wards in the east of the city, it is not a place where wealth is overly evident, but neither is want. While by no means a sleepy hollow, it has none of the pent-up-ness of the central business districts, or the brittle proud-of-itself chic of the city’s shopping meccas only a few stops west."
One of these sentences contains information. The rest say a lot about the writer, but nothing at all about Tokyo.
